ORIGIN: The MUS-e project was created thanks to the inspiration of violinist Yehudi Menuhin. It is a European project that has operated for 25 years across 13 European countries and follows the teaching guidelines provided by the European Union.
AIM: The project aims to educate new generations through artistic expression (music, theatre, dance, visual arts), using this as a shared language to combat social inequalities (marginalisation, violence, isolation) and promote integration and communication.
SCOPE: A cultural social integration project aimed at primary school children.
FORMAT: Working in collaboration with teachers and headteachers, the project is provided free of charge to primary schools and offers the opportunity to insert workshops with artistic professionals into the teaching schedule. Each lesson is planned and run personally by the artist. The artists (some of whom international) are selected by an artistic coordinator who assesses the quality (in terms of the curriculum) and educational value of the workshop.
DURATION: Three year project.
